Student Affairs

To Our Students

A warm SUNO welcome to you from the Division of Student Affairs and Enrollment Services. In order to support the academic mission of Southern University at New Orleans, the Office of Student Affairs develops programs and services that foster a sense of community, ensure a respectful and inclusive environment and enrich the overall student experience here at SUNO.

It is our belief that a carefully planned and well-executed holistic co-curricular program will help students succeed in their academic, social and professional pursuits. For those of you who are new to SUNO, you will soon come to realize why this is such a special place. For some of you, what you will remember most here will be the academic environment and the opportunity to be challenged intellectually by our faculty and your peers. For others, you will remember the experiences around campus and your participation in the varied clubs and organizations, both academic and social. Some of you may even decide to develop and test your ability to lead through student government or by starting your own new group. However you choose to express yourself, you will come to see that we are all a part of this great community we call Southern University at New Orleans, and every student plays a part in shaping who we are, investing themselves in important decisions and setting and upholding our community standards.

As college students, you will experience new found freedoms, and here at SUNO we encourage you to balance those freedoms with responsibility to each other and to our community. As you discover Southern University at New Orleans, aim high and find ways to connect to your fellow students and, of course, enjoy yourself. Do not hesitate to call on the staff of the Division of Student Affairs during your time at Southern University at New Orleans. We are here to help advise and support you throughout your matriculation at the University. We wish you the very best in your growth as a student, your advancement towards your degree and pursuit of your career goals.

Go Knights!
